July may be National Ice Cream month, but today is the actual National Ice Cream DAY! So of course, I have a new tasty ice cream recipe to celebrate with.
This recipe uses store bought ice cream, but turns it into these amazing squares that give the ice cream a crunchy base that includes almonds, coconut, sugar, and Rice Krispies cereal.
I also teamed up with some other Utah bloggers to #celebratingfood2015 with some other cool ice cream treats and also compiled recipes from my archives to give you a total of 27 recipes. Yep, it’s pretty much ice cream heaven here today!
- 2 Tbsp butter
- 1/2 cup slivered almonds
- 1 cup Rice Krispies cereal
- 1/2 cup flaked coconut
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- pinch of salt
- 1 (1 3/4 qt) carton vanilla bean ice cream, softened when needed
- Preheat oven to 375.
- In a large skillet melt butter and mix in almonds. Cook almonds while stirring until toasted. They will get golden brown. This should just take a couple of minutes.
- Then stir in the Rice Krispies, coconut, brown sugar, and salt. Stir until well combined.
- Press mixture into the bottom of a 9 x 13 inch baking dish. Bake at 375 for 5-6 minutes until edges are golden.
- Cool crust completely.
- Spread softened ice cream over cooled crust. Cover and place in the freezer overnight. Cut into bars to serve. Serves 12-15.
